An Easter Inspiration!


Hi Everyone,

It’s challenge time over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This month our challenge hostess for March,  Tosh Leyendekker has been tempting us with pics of food to use as our inspiration to create our cards. Anything goes...shapes, embellishments, styles... we have to create our card/project based on each week's photo. All the photos are from Williams-Sonoma.

TLL%20CCEE%20March%202010%20Challenge%20NestSo far this month when I looked at the photos of the food, I saw sketches. With this one I went a different way. With this week’s photo, I was inspired by the eggs and also the nest/basket that the eggs are in. So I created an Easter card.

I used MFT Stamps “Pure Innocence – My Basket of Eggs” to create my card, the basket the girl is carry reminded me of the container holding the eggs in the pic. Of course I had to get my Egg Nestabilities out again to play with them, so I stamps the girl onto my white card and then used the egg nestabilities to cut her out. I added the sky using my copic airbrush, and the grass is a Martha Stewart punch. The pale pink egg layer was also cut using the egg nestie and then I used my scallop scissors to cut around the edge of the darker pink card.


For the inside of my card I die cut another egg shape from the pink card and added the sentiment that is included in the PI – My Basket of Eggs set.
